"1) Does the "1 ml water solution"-calculator-trick really yield the right ppm?" I asked Chuck the same question, here is his response: 'I've never tried it that way, but it appears it works. If I plug in some test numbers for Nitrate in KNO3, in a 50g tank, 1 Tablespoon in 500ml of water, each ml added to the tank adds 0.04ppm. If I were to dump the entire 500ml bottle in, that would be 0.04 x 500, which gives me 20ppm. And if I use your method of plugging in 1ml, I get 18.84, which is the same when you factor in rounding losses...' 2) Do I dose for 150 litres or 300 litres in my 300 litres-tank after the Tom Barr-50%-weekly-waterchange-reset-method? I don't think it matters that much. The reset is needed mostly if you are overdosing. Try it both ways and see what happens. I dose daily and change 20% per week, so there isn't much variation. Love my Rondomatic... TW
